5,000 next week or next month after this weekend. don't forget to join me this sunday on the fox news channel latin a.m. eastern, we will talk about the latest for the economy as well as markets when i sit down with the ceo of qualcomm. time for "varney and company". thanks for joining us on "the opening bell". have a great show. stuart: finally a plan to attack isis. in april may be. or may perhaps. if iraqi troops are ready. the pentagon news the enemy the battle plan. apple has a plan. build an electric car by 2020. they have given investors their battle plan and investors like it. i have a plan. i am heading to florida. it is cold down there but all does absolutely frigid air routes. i have not heard much about global warming. have you. "varney and company," the winter edition is about to begin.
11:01 am
all right. alert this. we will talk isis, apple and everything else in a moment. more problems for obamacare. lighthouse says it's hundred thousand customers to sign up for obamacare on health care.gov were sent the wrong tax information, told to delay their filing. that means their tax refunds will be delayed as well. this is the latest computer glitch to play obamacare. it comes a week after president obama took a victory lap for all the people who signed the. also breaking as we speak, a top ukrainian military official says about 20 russian tanks, 10 missile launchers and busloads of troops have crossed the border. russia has not commented on these reports. leaders of france and germany say sanctions intense russia will move forward if the ceasefire and a cease-fire isn't respected. military action has broken the cease-fire. maybe more sanctions on the
11:02 am
road. we will see. apple still near an all-time high, the company is the most valuable in world. now they have put up five year time frame of for a computer that you drive otherwise known as apple cart. welcome back to the show. you have been critical of elon musk and his electric car, relying on government subsidies tax subsidies. would you be opposed to that apple car? >> yes i would be. apple may have several reasons to develop something like this but stack detectives are behind it won't go for it. stuart: $180 billion in cash? >> they could think they could take the technology forward or they may realize the electronics within the car are the most voluble things so there are not competing with has led in that
11:03 am
sense. stuart: five years from now that will be a computer you drive. and apple wants to be right there running the platform. i am not sure they will have that design. >> i like this car. >> reminds me of an east german treuhand. >> reminds me of a few go. remember that car? stuart: what you saying? that is right. that is nowhere near what they're finally going to come out with. >> i like the hugo. remember the car made of mud? peter: one i can remember the words but it is really funny thing. >> this has gone way off track. stuart: what do you think about apple coming out with a car five years from now? forget the tax subsidies. what about apple? >> if it is about the electronics in the car, making
11:04 am
cars safer giving consumers what they actually want to buy, consumers don't want to buy cars, they cost an enormous amount of money, just to save something and gas mileage, they want features that are going to make some safe, get driving to work these year. stuart: i think it will be a wild success. that is what i think. hopefully they get taxpayer support. >> i am completely against that. stuart: gary from foxnews.com auto editor can apple design and build a car in five years? if so how will they do that? are they going to build a tire? let's see what gary has to say at the top of the hour. it is friday morning, this is gone nowhere friday, frigid don't know where friday. we're down two points 17,983. lower profits at john deere and it cut its profit forecast for the year. john deere is an exporter, that
11:05 am
is very tough when the dollar goes straight up and brazil has been a big problem but it is only down $0.23 and 91. 0 oil has been moving quite a lot recently but this morning dead flat, up, down one cent, $51 a barrel gas up a tiny fraction of the night, still $2.27 national average $0.22 higher than one month ago. let's get to the terror front. military officials laying out a game plan to retake the iraqi city of mosul from isis. the pentagon says operations to retake the city will begin in april or may 8th. iraqi soldiers will be the ground operation but only when they are ready. senior advisor christian whiteman joins us now. they laid out the battle plan and there's a great deal of criticism because of that. it is a plan that many people approve of because they say let them kill each other. keep our guys out of it.
11:06 am
the conover is there. lead and take care of it. that is the president's policy. what do you say? >> the problem is the iraqi shiite army is even less receptive than marian hugo. i can tell you bunch of iraqi rifles only dropped once. they lost every significant battle when you get out of she areas. if we are talking about seriously taking the fight isis that is great, i hope for the iraqi army but the track record is terrible and this is another recipe for conflict. stuart: it is the essence of president obama's policy, we stay out. we won't put ground troops there, we stay out let them fight their battle. in principle but the state to that? regardless of performance of the iraqi army would use it to the principle? >> would be great if a worked a dozen. we are dependent on sunni tribal forces rise up against faces that they won't do that if we are sitting in a 5-star hotel in of the dobby saying yes, go fight and even though you got the trade last time this
11:07 am
happened, we will be with you this time. i don't want to be involved in a war that is halfway. it is come to the point we have to resolve ourselves and we should want to win and if that takes ground forces than i am afraid that is the necessary thing even though no one wants to do that politically. stuart: let me put this one at you. i'm planning at devil's advocate to some degree but the pentagon gives away the battle plan. here we come on this they were this way, how many others then coming and here's where we are going. maybe we are lying. maybe that is a ruse. we won't go for mozilla, we will go somewhere, this is successful lying to the enemy? >> that is my hope when i heard this and you think back to world war ii when we had a fake army to convince the germans we were invading in calais and set of normandy but i don't think that. if you look at this pentagon i think there are two other possibilities both of which are bad and foolish, by saying this
11:08 am
week and force the iraqi army into a fight we want them to have. worst case scenario is this covers a series of disasters by the obama administration and sony predictions that isis was sort of on its heels. the pentagon spokesman just got fired first week in part because it was done for data military officer giving political talking points about a victory most people could look and see isn't happening. stuart: russia moving more troops and weapons and the ukraine. vladimir putin has won and we were not paying attention. what do you make of this? >> vladimir putin is pushing on an open door if you look at the recalculates he doesn't respond to? little reset buttons from hillary clinton. he does what he thinks is in his interest and is pushing on an open door in ukraine. there are things europe can do that are inherently european like using the international criminal court, charging russian leaders with war crimes but they're not even doing that. we need to rebalance within nato to make it clear there's going to be a limit to how far
11:09 am
vladimir putin can go we are not doing that, we are not arming the ukrainians seriously, there are going to get away with it. stuart: thanks for joining us on this frigid morning. you look like you wanted to say something. >> it is fiction to say we don't have ground troops in iraq, we have thousands of troops in iraq. this is mission creep. let's be honest with the american people you can distinguish between troops that are there to guide the iraqis, they will never get a factor. stuart: that is a fair point. and now in tease you missed it, headlines from lauren simonetti who joins us on the stock exchange. >> good friday morning. and he's you missed it, $14,000 a day by federal regulators, they're not cooperating with the probe, the air bags can explode sending metal flying into the air and killing drivers and passengers. 12 automakers recalling 25 million vehicles worldwide
11:10 am
because of its. six deaths have led to the shoe. they have to define every day until they cooperate. delta promising checked bags in 20 minutes or less and if they don't do that you get 2500 bonus miles. not a bad deal. olive garden tonight is having their second annual parents' night out. drop the kids off at your local gym or fitness center, you get free babysitting while you dine at olive garden. you must make a reservation. they are down 2 tenths of 1%. stuart: freezing in some parts of florida, negative temperatures across the midwest. this is the deep freeze. climate change or just plain winter? let's not get into that? the forecast is next. we ask the question can you go one day without using one of their products? we make the case apple is the most important company in the world bar none.
11:11 am

i take prilosec otc each morning for my frequent heartburn. because it gives me... zero heartburn! prilosec otc. the number 1 doctor-recommended frequent heartburn medicine for 9 straight years. one pill each morning. 24 hours. zero heartburn.

11:13 am
11:14 am
stuart: don't know where frigid friday, 7 points and 17,970. look at the share price of rocket fuel. this is a web based video advertising companies it came out with the disappointing numbers. they go down 25% lower at $11 a share. disappointing profit forecasts from the restaurant chain noodles and company. it is going down. little unusual because most restaurants are doing very well in this stock market but not noodles. it is dangerously cold out there. look at this. cities across the country new record lows, temperatures bad enough but these are wind chills, we have feels like
11:15 am
temperature of-10 in new york city and look at it across the other major cities of the country. we will bring a live report from chicago-12 wind chill coming up next hour. what apple please, their latest product will watch the stores april reportedly they have ordered 6 million to be made by the launch. will it be a hit? someone who knows the answer to that question is with us, senior tech analyst christina warren. the big hits or not? >> will be a big hit. stuart: explain yourself. >> it won't be as big as the i phone or the ipad but it is a new apple product and this has opportunity to be the first terrible that will really take off and people want. when i talked to regular people on the street they're excited about the apple watch. stuart: you found a regular person. >> they are still excited about it. stuart: these are wearable.
11:16 am
what you mean is computing power that you wear in clothing or on your body is what the watch is. >> it is going to be at many input to your phone so instead of having a phone out of time you have to plan to your watch and i have a new text message or call is coming in or let me check the phone. stuart: if that is all it does it is not going to be a great big hit, is it? >> you would be surprised. make it fashionable, convenient, able to do one or two pull famous. >> can we ever focus on anything again? if my wrist is sinking -- i won't get any work done. >> the goal of all this is to make it as a dd as possible. stuart: wait, wait. make it has a d d as possible? >> that is what these kings are all about. the pharmaceutical bottom line so we can go on the drug's. stuart: i you joking? >> i am completely joking.
11:17 am
>> to be the bottom line here is it is a platform. is a new platform for this whole genre of wearable computing. >> exactly. when you look at the original iphone who would have thought we would be doing everything we are doing on it now. that is an opportunity too. it is the new screen, this time on your wrist, it can be a little more personal and some of the of the things we do like heart or blood pressure can get really interesting. >> apple's says the watch comes out in april, the car we hear, 2020, elector carl, five years. can they do in five years? >> i think they can. it will take some work it might not be the perfect version they might have to get some help but they can do a car in five years. >> a won't build a tire but the the engine in. >> cable design the engine themselves and probably design other components that they have a lot of manufacturers who can do these kings for the man do will probably take the official
11:18 am
tires maybe the apple logo on the truck. stuart: mary was saying earlier it is a platform. that is what it is about. they might use interesting things in the engine but if they're getting involved in a lot of space which is increasingly looking like that is what is going to happen is about controlling the experience inside the car. you go into a kind of allah and it is not a great experience to control even the radio. and opportunity to control not just the radio but that weather alerts, location, directions. >> safety too. you are getting too close to the car in front of you. stuart: will be like sitting in your living room and somebody else is driving you to place you want to go to. >> yes and why you are watching your itunes and listening watching videos listening to music, playing games, all in the comfort of your car. >> will we look back 20 years from now and think we were in sane to ever drive our own cars? >> i hope so. "imus in the morning" when it is
11:19 am
fun to drive a car. >> is unsafe. >> i wouldn't get in a car with you, stuart varney. stuart: up porche 9/11 -- >> that is a fun car to drive. >> a fun car to drive but driving in this city, driving in any event i would much rather sit back and play games and listen to the radio. stuart: on the subject of driving a want to look at the video i took the video, i didn't drive. that is my vehicle, it will come would you. here it comes, that is my tracked vehicle on my farm in three feet of snow. in the back of it you see the logs that i cut. that is of the alleged half. my production team says that is lousy video. so cristina, what did i do wrong with the video?
11:20 am
>> you turned your phone the wrong way. you can't record with your phone standing straight up. you have to turn it to the side. stuart: i held it like that. wonderful video. >> no. stuart: what should i do? like that? would is the vantage like that? >> you get the entire frame in perspective. you have that two white bars on the side because it doesn't fill up the screen. stuart: i was told to rack so time is up. even though you are totally wrong. serious stuff rudy guiliani says president obama does not love america end rudy is not backing down. >> the reality is from all but i can see of this president, all i have heard of him, he apologizes for america, criticizes america.

stuart: rudy guiliani doubling down on comments teammate about the president. listen to is this. >> from light and see of this president, although i heard of him, he apologizes for america, he criticizes america. i may be wrong. is my opinion and i entitled to it. i did not detect in this man the same rhetoric, the same language the same love of
11:25 am
america i detected another american presidents including democrats, guides a lot of the things he says a lot of things that he does. stuart: watch out, next hour brian kilmeade joins us to talk about rudy guiliani. the government's tough nutritionists say stop eating meat so much because meat is bad for the environment. remember when we had a professor on to the polls in the theory that cheeseburgers cause global warming, we got to roll that tape. >> if you look at the actual data on the subject the epa for example calculates that only 8% of all co2 emissions of carbon dioxide comes from agriculture livestock is smaller than that so the fact that meat for example is the single greatest threat doesn't mesh well with the scientific research on the subject. stuart: thank you very much. the theory is that cow flatulence is a major contributor to global warming
11:26 am
therefore don't eat meat. >> these green the wackos won't be happy until we are all living in mud huts and eating plants and gathering berries. reality is that science has made our food more plentiful, safer and cheaper ultimately for the world's for and this kind of talk is crazy talk. stuart: what do you make of genetically modified food. >> is safe. we have been genetically modifying food for hundreds of years, there is nothing to unsafe about gm 0 food. that is another anti science-fiction and go look at the research. stuart: we are glad to have you on the show this friday morning with a ray of sanity. >> this drive me nuts. it drives me crazy. stuart: up next the man who may have the best memory in the country. i am going to quiz him and see how good he is.
